  • I was recently looking through things I can help with in Project: Clean-Up and one of them was managing categories better. You said that if someone was to do the job well they would have to be admin so I was wondering if I could have admin to help with this job. Thanks if you don't want to give me admin thats fine I'll help with something else and if you do give me admin when I'm done you can then take my admin privileges away. Thx. I sent the same message to Lukas and Belt of Deltora in case you weren't on.

  • Hello Samaru,

    I notice you added some references to articles and used this format for it:

    Could you explain why you use this format and not the cite template we always use?

    Greetings,

    • Hi Dream.

      Simplest way to explain it is misunderstanding. I thought that's how references were made, but evidently they are not.

    • Alright that is no problem. You can look at the cite template and see how they are added. At first it was a bit confusing for me as well but you will get used to it. If you need help with adding references just let me know :)

      Greetings

  • Hi Samaru,

    Just letting you know if you were not aware already, that the Discord server for this wiki is up and running. Lukas, Dream and I are already on it and it has proven quite useful when discussing this wiki and Deltora, as well as discussing any major decisions. Being one of the most active contributors and a senior admin if would be great if you could join. If you'd like to join, just create a discord account (if you do not already have one) and click on the discord link on the wiki home page in order to join the Deltora Quest Wiki server. Lukas, Dream and I just use our wiki names in order to maintain privacy and so we recognise each other easily. Also you will be made an admin on the discord as well, as you are an admin on this wiki.

    Kind Regards,

    Archer of Az-Zure

  • Can I have an answer to the response to the message you placed on my wall? Please?

  • Hi Samaru,

    Sorry for the inconvience but I am writing to you in regards to the recent edits by Jdogno7. As you have probably realised, Jdogno7 is starting to cause some inconviences for the more regular contributors on this wiki. I know that he has been banned before in similar circumstances so I took that into the highest consideration and I honestly tried my hardest to be patient with his unusual and somewhat disrespectful editing, by trying to assist him. However he continues to ignore any advice from myself, Dream and yourself. I have tried to explain to him how an argument over simple grammar like a semi-colon is not really in the wiki's best interest. As I am not an admin, i'll leave the decision making up to yourself or Lukas. I will however leave this link from two years ago here that may draw some light on how you may approach the situation, possibly with a ban or the threat of a ban, as well as our ability to help him out (if that is even possible).

    Kind Regards,

    • Thank you Samaru for dealing with this situation in a very humble and professional manner. He was provided with multiple opportunities to become an active and beneficial team member, so he has only himself to blame. Now that he has been banned, lets get back to work in making this wiki the hub for the Deltora universe.

      P.S. Just be aware that from what I have researched into his actions, he likes to bombard message walls on other wikis in which he has not been banned, so don't be suprised if he tries to communicate with either yourself, myself or Dream in response to his ban on another wiki. Hopefully he does not and he learns from his actions.

      Kind Regards,

      Archer of Az-Zure

    • Yeah, whoever this person is, it was basically impossible to work with him. Thanks Samaru for dealing with this issue. Now, we can resume editing without having to deal with a troublemaker constantly.

  • I was wondering whether I could do some edits on the Rithmere article? Just noting my editing plan.

  • What was wrong with referring to it in singular form in the instances that you altered shortly before now.

    • Hello

      As I mentioned yesterday when you first asked me if the edits for the page were acceptable, some of them did not flow properly. "A fire bead was among the objects shown to our heroes at Tom's shop," is not the right choice of words, because Tom did not show them one fire bead. He showed them a bottle full of them. This goes back to the original reason why I said the article should not have been altered; the books themselves refer to fire beads as plurals, not singulars.

      Singular use still worked in the article, however, which is why I kept the changes to the description at the top. Because that description was for a single bead and what they are capable of. But during the bulk of the article, which is referrencing moments in the books themsleves, it makes more sense to use the plural form, because the book scenes were describing multiple fire beads and not singulars.

      '"A fire bead was among the objects shown to our heroes at Tom's shop," is not the right choice of words, because Tom did not show them one fire bead.

    • Now you are just grasping for straws. He showed them a jar of fire beads, that is established clearly. And in any case, I am not discussing this any further. I have explained, multiple times now, why the article is to remain as it is, and both CreativeDream and Az-Zur have given their opinions on the matter. So please, accept the fact that I aggreed with you that the singular form could be used selectively in the article, and stop bringing the issue up.
